The primary focal point of the entry are two simple, elegant sculptures by National Sculptors' Guild fellow Kathleen Caricof on each side of the main drive approaching the vehicular gateway of the Coronado Yacht Club in California. Each side of the drive features a marble sculpture. On the East is an abstract depiction of a sailboat, while to the West is an abstracted motor boat.
The forms and line of each relate and complement each other providing a graceful presence to the CYC entry. Each representing a primary portion of the Coronado Yacht Club Membership. Through the use of the iconic imagery of boats we bring recognition to all of the major clubs; “Sail Fleet”, “Cruise Fleet” and “Rod & Reel” and identify the club to the greater community.
“Setting Sail” is a bronze, marble and stainless steel sculpture, set on the east side of the gate. An abstraction of a sailboat, its lines are elegant & sweeping. A curve shows wind blowing into the tall slender sail.
Opposite is “Making Waves” a marble and granite abstracted motorboat. The composition shows the bow of a ship facing the viewer. The strength and power of the boat as it charges through water is felt from strong lines. Carved from Colorado Yule Marble on Black Granite with the some stainless steel elements.
JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs.
